Bugcrowd Brings Vulnerability Remediation to Crowdsourced Security Market

Vulnerability remediation advice is intended to help customers fix vulnerabilities and write more secure code.

SAN FRANCISCO – June 28, 2018 – Bugcrowd, the leader in crowdsourced security, announced today the release of Vulnerability Remediation Advice. The first offering in the industry aimed at fixing vulnerabilities, Bugcrowd’s Vulnerability Remediation Advice accelerates remediation to reduce risk faster while introducing secure coding methodologies that help educate development and improve code velocity.

Most developers are not experts in secure coding and often struggle to quickly and effectively patch vulnerabilities. Vulnerability Remediation Advice delivers step-by-step guidance and industry standard resources specific to the vulnerability type, offering helpful insights for developers to successfully patch the bug and strengthen the code base. As a result, developers can build applications that are secure as early in the development cycle as possible, while security teams can assure high-impact business risks are being addressed and remediated quickly.

According to Gartner’s July 2017 Hype Cycle for Application Security, 2017, “Proactively detecting security vulnerabilities earlier in the software development life cycle (SDLC) is less expensive than fixing the vulnerability later, when the application is in production, reducing the overall security exposure of the application and its data.”

As Bugcrowd continues its mission to drive the long-term success of its customers’ security programs, it is imperative to address the issue of fixing the vulnerabilities found by the Crowd. Vulnerability Remediation Advice was built to help security and development teams reduce the time from vulnerability discovery to remediation to reduce risk to the business. It also has the benefit of training developers to write more secure code.

“If you want to truly reduce risk, you need your software team fixing critical vulnerabilities as quickly as possible,” Jonathan Gohstand, VP of Product at Bugcrowd. “Bugcrowd’s Vulnerability Remediation Advice makes it easier for developers to do exactly that, while also learning how to write more secure code overall.”

Vulnerability Remediation Advice is available starting today. To learn more about how Bugcrowd helps security and development teams fix vulnerabilities, visit www.bugcrowd.com.
